I just got a pair of Fly High V-Drive Sacs, and the Locker Sac. The Pair is 800# and the Tube is 400#. When I ran this configuration the wake was HUGE but was too steep. Had to run a short rope because of it.

My question is how to get about 200+ more pounds in the bow, Cheaply. It cant be static weight because it cant effect the tounge weight when towing the boat.

Get another tube sac and lay it in your walk thru into the bow.

Bikini Girls ! Plus they help dry the boat at days end. Two should suffice.

Sand bags.

I've got several two gallon kitty liter containers, that I filled with sand. I bought damaged bags of sand for $0.50, the empty 2 gallon jugs were free. So for about $1.00 I have about 100 lbs of ballast. Is that cheap enough for you? If I were to do it again I'd get small landscaping pebbles. In case of a spill the pebbles might be easier to clean up.

Weight toward the back = steep wake, wake toward the front = rampy wake.

Just run the rears partially full and the front completely full. A couple of hardbodies in the bow should help too, they are easier to move around than fat ones!
